Supporting Stimson

The Stimson Center promotes international security, shared prosperity, and justice through applied research and independent analysis. We are proud of the impact our work has had reducing threats to global, regional, and national security. Although we are not alone in pursuing these issues, our approach is unique, combining global perspectives with deep local connections and turning policy solutions into real world tools.

Stimson is grateful for the generous support of the individuals, corporations, foundations, and governments that contribute to the wide range of research projects we undertake every year.


For 30 years, private foundations have formed the core of our support, and we view our many philanthropic partners as an invaluable part of our success.


We rely on the many individuals who share our organization’s values and commitment to pragmatism. Our supporters have dedicated their careers to public service, are actively engaged foreign policy research, and are members of the public interested in knowing more about a rapidly changing world.


To engage diverse stakeholders, we engage relevant industries in much of our work. From defense contractors to insurance companies, private sector voices play an important role in shaping our understanding of the issues.


As primary consumers of our research, analysis, and tools, governments are key contributors and partners in our work. Often the implementers of the recommendations we make and the processes we design, governments play a critical role in developing responses to policy challenges.
